They run a lot faster and they can do flying jumps

My Hillary Clinton Haircut

Well, I wanted a short haircut for spring. It ended up being a really short haircut. When I had all of the styling product in my hair, I asked Pete if my hair kind of looked like Hillary Clinton's haircut. He just started cracking up! So, now I'm in my workout clothes with bright lipstick and a blazer with my thumbs up.

Who do you want to answer the call on the first day??! Me! I may mumble on the phone, and I may not answer if I lost the phone, but I'll be there with a smile :-)

Our New 5 Additions to the Family

I was going to surprise Pete with baby chicks for Easter. Pete came home today with baby chicks! Ha! We have a extra shed outback that we can convert to a chicken coup. We have 2 Rhode Island Reds and 3 Americana chickens. Phillip is excited for the new chickens. We'll have to name them soon.

Our new "Back Hall"

Pete was on a mission this weekend.  This was a small space by our back door.  We were thinking of lockers, with and without doors, but decided because of the traffic flow, we'd keep it open.  We were out on errands yesterday and found baskets that fill the cubbies perfectly.  (at World Market).  The pillows we had in storage from our california house.  I still need to make a pad for the bench, but for now I think it looks pretty spiffy :-)

Pete's new Dental Assisstant

My Dad had a tooth that broke.  Luckily Pete could squeeze him into his schedule.  Phillip and I stopped by the office to see Oma and Opa.  Phillip saw the x-ray of my Dad's tooth.  He kept saying.  "Daddy's fixing Opa's Tooth."

The best was the eating frenzy at the Costco food court.  :-)  

Spring Fever

I think everyone in Utah is ready for spring.  Phillip is especially ready to start playing outside.  After living in California for a year, this has been a long cold winter.  Like the quote from the movie Ground Hogs Day, "It's going to cold. It's going to be dark and it's going to last the rest of your life!"  ha!  Good thing spring is just around the corner :-)
